Spice World is a hot pot restaurant in downtown Flushing specializing in Sichuan-style hot pot. It currently has over 600 locations globally, including Sydney and Singapore. The one in Flushing is the 613rd store. Spice World originated in Chengdu, Sichuan, a hometown for the most authentic hot pot. Spice World has already earned its reputation in Chengdu since its establishment. The visit from David Cameron (Former Prim Minister of the Great Britain) and Orlando Bloom (English Actor) just made the Spice World a even hotter topic in social media. The name of Mr. Cameron's favorite dish "Pork Meatball with Cilantro" was changed to "Prime Minister's Favorite Meatball" and became the signature dish.

The waiter kept asking us to eat faster and shut down the power to drive us away.
The food is expensive and the amount is poor.
Bad place.

Beware of the spicy broth...even the lightest spice is wayyyy spicy, unless they gave us the wrong one... wowza!!!

Interesting concept, good ambiance and delicious!

If it’s your first time there, also be aware of the self serve sauce bar that includes fruits. Otherwise, they’ll add it to your tab and you won’t know what it is. We didn’t use it, so we asked for it to be removed from the check.

Everything was great there, especially the sauce: Sesame sauce! It has the best sauce for hot pots in New York City.

The place is really good, food is tasty, but a bit pricey though, but hey, it is for a Tinder Date. What you get out of it is worth the price.

The hot pot is a special one with the bear shape beef tallow and the food is fine. But the waitress not pay so much attention to our request, especially when it comes to the free offer.

Food was OKAY, we ordered way too much for two of us. It might be too spicy for most people. The air vent made the restaurant freezing! Even the hot pot could not warm me up. After we paid our bill, one of the waitress kept asking me to sign my check, which made me so uncomfortable!

The food was good, however the prices were a little on the high side considering that you could find very similar hot pot experiences within a four block radius

Hostee was very nasty. I was told they did not have time to check OpenTable reservations yet when I arrived and was told that she will add my party to the waiting list. We waited an hour then I stepped away to use restroom. Then I was called and my friend told hostee that it was our party, the hostee insisted that it was not for us even after we showed them the opentable reservation. Then she called another party to replace my party. We had to wait another 20 minutes afterwards for another table. The hostee said "if you are not happy, call the police."
